Forms authentication except for a single page.

    Is there any way to use forms authentication but have a page excluded from
    it? I need to have on my login page a link to a 'need help' page which I
    currently do. But when I try and navigate to the page, it redirects me to my
    login page which makes sense since that's my authentication page.

    My help page will be the only page that I allow somebody to get to without
    actually login in.

    TIA - Jeffrey.

  2. Every folder can have its authentication configured separately.
    Therefore you can have a help folder that doesn't allows anonymous users.

    Here's more info:
